“かつて、魔王ハドラーにより苦しめられていた世界は、
「勇者」と呼ばれた一人の剣士とその仲間たちの手により平和を取り戻した――

時は流れ…。魔王から解放されたモンスターたちが暮らす南海の孤島・デルムリン島。
島唯一の人間であり、勇者に憧れる少年「ダイ」は、モンスターたちと平和に暮らしていた。
だが、その暮らしも、魔王ハドラーの復活により一変する。
師との約束、仲間との出会い、逃れられぬ宿命…
再び危機が訪れた世界を救うため、勇者を目指す少年・ダイの冒険が始まるー!”

“[A] world that was once afflicted by [Hadlar],
Peace was restored by the hand of a swordsman who was called a “hero” and his friends–

Time goes by … Dermulin Island, an isolated island in the South Sea where the monsters released from the devil live.
The only human being on the island, the boy ‘Dai,’ who longs for a hero, lived in peace with the monsters.
However, his life will change completely with the resurrection of [Hadlar].
Promises with teachers, encounters with friends, fate that cannot be escaped …
The adventure of a boy, Dai, who aims to be a hero, begins to save the world where the crisis has come again!”
